This exhibition surveys the work of German artist Wolfgang Laib (b. 1950) who since the mid-1970s has deepened the Minimalist aesthetic by creating objects from pure organic materials. Works on view include a "milkstone" sculpture of carved marble with milk, works of pollen, and structures in beeswax -- including a narrow, accessible chamber lined with fragrant panels of beeswax.
